Yun Wang

I have been with HBF Fitness for over 4 years now. I started off as a participant, just like you. In 2016, I took a step forward in health and fitness to became a personal trainer. My passion is to encourage and empower participants to achieve their fitness goals. No goal is too small for me. Each of us has our own unique story and our own journey. I can’t wait to hear your story and be a small part of your fitness journey.

Spending time with my son and getting fit together is the highlight of my Saturday morning. We run around and it feels more like fun than fitness. His favourite part is chasing me and my favourite is seeing him so happy and engaged.

Andrew - Family

It’s great to exercise with – and be motivated by – like-minded people. I’m a middle-aged woman and did something to improve my fitness because I didn’t want to end up being old and unfit! The HBF Fitness classes have transformed my mind and body into something I am now proud of.

Lauren - Beginner

My initial reason for attending the sessions was to increase my fitness. What I found was a fun and positive activity that supported my physical and mental health, while also being engaged in the community.

Rodney - Intermediate

I absolutely love going to train in the city. The sessions are tough, challenging and fun. There’s always a great atmosphere and the regular faces have become friends. It’s helped me improve physically, mentally and socially and I have done things that were once never possible.
